You love your kids, but it can be a struggle to teach them the things they need to know to be successful in this world.
There are so many different skills they need and there is not a lot of extra time!
It’s hard to know what to focus on.
But kids are bright! They have ability to learn things in amazing ways.
Think about a time when your kids learned something. Like tying their shoes? Making a basket on the court? Or driving?
It took some
and a lot of
Well, character comes from learning skills in much that same way.
Building character is actually a bunch of smaller skills.
Those skills don’t come automatically, but they can be learned!!!!
It takes some time.
It won’t happen overnight.
And actually, that’s good news!
That means you can take a deep breath and feel a little better. You’re doing ok. Junior isn’t suppose to have perfect manners or flawless character yet.
But you both should be working on it together, so that one day he will.
It will take some guidance and some practice.
We’d love to help you with that.
We can walk with you on your journey to know what to do next, what will really make a difference, and figure out how to fit this important part of your child’s development into your already busy day.

Don’t worry, we’re here to walk with you through each step!
So, why is this process so powerful and successful?
When you present information to your kids in this way you are not only guiding them to learn a specific skill and giving them the time, guidance and practice they need, you are also teaching them the ability to identify and learn new skills on their own.
That is the most important part of all!
It ensures their ultimate success!
Because no matter what skills you have helped them develop, if you have shown them HOW to seek out and develop skills, then when they are older they will be able to identify other skills and be able to develop them on their own.
Ever heard the phrase:
That is what you’ll be doing!
Teach and guide your child to learn skills so they are involved in the process, then they will know how to develop more skills on their own too.
So in addition to all the valuable skills you will have helped them develop, you will have given them the gift to continue learning on their own!
Let’s look at that process in a little more detail…
